Signs have been making businesses stand out from the rest since commerce itself was just a wee nipper. Nowadays, with 99% of signage being designed on a computer and made with vinyl, you can make your business stand out with the human touch, via a Signwriter who is geekishly passionate about letterforms and layout, with just his hands, some brushes and a bit of paint.

23 carat gold leaf

Did this last week for a mate's girlfriend Naomi's birthday - she goes by the DJ handle Niami Nice - seemed only right to lay a bit of the nice and shiny stuff over it.  I finished it in the studio on Saturday evening (I can often be found rock and rolling it getting high on paint fumes by myself of a weekend evening) under the strip lights there. But when I came back in the next morning to give it a lick of varnish, the sunlight was sneaking in through the window and the gold leaf was twinkling a treat - something that you'll never be able to get with paint or vinyl.
